About this mod

Adds over 100 new items to cooking using alchemy ingredients.

Permissions and credits

Alchemical Cooking Recipes is meant to give characters who do not utilize alchemy a greater reason to harvest alchemical ingredients and a provide a fair supplement to those that do. Every ingredient was given a purpose and is used as a direct or indirect cooking ingredient for new foods and drinks. Generally, the type and strength of the magic effects provided by the new items were determined by the original effects associated with one or more alchemy ingredients used, the availability of the ingredients, and how complex the recipe was. However, some items have custom effects that provide unique benefits when consumed.

IMPORTANT: This mod is not intended to have cooking replace alchemy. The buffs are intended to be small and long term since most of the the effects use their own keyword table and will stack with effects from potions and enchantments. While there are a multitude of overhauls for Skyrim's game play, this mod was built around vanilla and may not be balanced for your personal play style.

You will need to visit the Alchemist's Shack on the edge of the Rift. You will find a nearby campfire and cooking pot with an alchemical cookbook resting on a stump. Reading this book will offer you the option to memorize the new cooking recipes and add them to your cooking menu. If at any point you wish to remove the recipes from the menu, you will need to return to the shack and read the book again to forget everything you learned.

The cookbook also offers the ability to activate a Smart Menu feature so that items will only appear in your cooking menu when you have a notable ingredient for a recipe in your inventory. Cooking ingredients added by ACR will always appear in the menu even if the Smart Menu feature is active due to some recipes relying on them to be in your inventory to appear.

***Alternatively, you can enter via console 'set ACRGlobalRecipeToggle to 1' to add all the items to the cooking menu or 'set ACRGlobalRecipeToggle to 0' to remove them. Entering 'set ACRGlobalSmartMenuToggle to 1' will activate the Smart Menu feature and ''set ACRGlobalSmartMenuToggle to 0' will deactivate it.

Mods that add new cooking recipes, change any textures, or alter meshes should be fully compatible. There may be clipping of the cooking area near the Alchemist's Shack if you have any mod that alters a significant portion of that worldspace.
